Well it most Deffinatly sounds like your drive went bad! But as i found out Yesterday there are more reasons to a non-functioning wii until you get down to the MOBO and start fresh!!!
Options from here:
1. Have a NAND Programmer / Person with the Tools take apart your wii and diagnose the prob and replace any parts that need to be
(ME - Krafter - Streamlinehd) (bad_ad = but he is over the pond, and would be alot to ship to him)
2. DIY -- Ebay some triwing and small screwdrivers and take the wii apart your self and try to swap a drive
3. Sell the wii for parts and buy a new one (leave this to the last possible one, because that is the most $$$$ out)
I'd not worry about the drive first thing, but rather the no video/blue screen first. How was the Wii connected --- composite/component? Did you try hooking up the alternative to whichever way it is now (the A/V does go bad on some Wiis; in such a case it takes out the composite but leaves the component intact).
Normally i would say that also night, but the wii i had yesterday refused to boot, becasue dumb me did not sit the cable correctly which can also be caused by a failed drive!!! Not saying that you are not correct but, like i said before its always good to start fresh with nothing but the MOBO!!!Quote:

But as i have heard from many now the the AV does go bad!! So always a good idea if you can to check other cables....
Yeah, OP please bear (bare?) in mind, I'm not a fix-it guy so my advice is likely less to consider than Emuhack's. I am a fixer-upper, but not of Wii hardware (although, apparently I'll be replacing an eject switch sometime soon on a boot2 Wii coming my way).
I just had this happen to me as well. Mine should be arriving at Nintendo today. Fingers crossed!
Are you saying you had no AV before the drive light went solid?
- No AV
- Messed around with Wii
- Drive wont eject and now solid blue LED
